95 North is a new and exciting quartet that, in the spring of 2010, took the Far Western District by storm . In their first quartet competition after just five rehearsals, they scored high enough to have easily earn a spot on the International contest stage and, after just seven months together, placed second at the FWD fall competition. In the summer of 2011 at their first international contest they placed among the 30 best quartets in the world.
This Nevada-based quartet — Jim (tenor), Larry (lead), and Nick (baritone) hail from Las Vegas and Mike (bass) lives in Reno — has over 80 years of combined barbershop experience and all have sung in numerous award-winning quartets. As luck would have it, these four men found themselves ready for a new quartet adventure in early 2010. Despite the distance between Las Vegas and Reno (which, by the way, happens to be connected by highway 95 North and, even more conveniently for Mike, numerous daily nonstop flights), they knew, after singing just a few chords together, they had something very special. 95 North loves to share their wonderful four-part harmony with audiences large and small.
